Red Bull Energy Drink is a functional beverage providing wings whenever you need them.

What’s Inside?

Alpine Spring Water

The water used for Red Bull is fresh Alpine spring water of highest quality, which comes from springs nearby production sites in Austria and Switzerland. This region, the Alps, is known as one of the world’s biggest fresh water reservoirs, where water is available in abundance and constantly replenished.

Taurine

Taurine is an amino acid, naturally occurring in the human body and present in the daily diet. It is involved in a wide range of biological processes.

Taurine is found in high concentrations in muscle, brain, heart and blood. A person weighing 70 kg has approximately 70 g of taurine distributed throughout their body. Put another way, a 70 kg person naturally already has in his body 70 times the amount of taurine contained in one can of Red Bull Energy Drink. Taurine is also contained in different foodstuffs like scallops, fish, poultry and most infant formulas.

Caffeine

Caffeine has already been known for its stimulating effects on the human body by ancient civilisations who consumed it from natural sources like tea, coffee, cacao beans & cola nuts. To this day caffeine is naturally present in more than 60 plants and contained in many foodstuffs such as coffee, tea and chocolate.

One of caffeine’s primary sites of action in the human body is its stimulating effect on cognitive functions. Caffeine helps to improve concentration and increase alertness. One 250ml can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains 80mg of caffeine.

Sucrose and Glucose

Sucrose and glucose are different types of sugars, which provide energy to body and mind. The sugar in Red Bull Energy Drink is produced from sugar beet. 100ml of Red Bull Energy Drink equates to 11g of sucrose and glucose combined. This total amount of sugars is comparable to that of 100ml apple or orange juice.

B-Group Vitamins

Vitamins are essential micronutrients that are required for maintaining normal body functions.

There are two types of vitamins: fat soluble and water soluble.

Red Bull contains water-soluble vitamins. Water-soluble vitamins do not get stored as much in the body as fat soluble vitamins. Instead they circulate through the blood plasma, whatever the body does not use will be released. Water soluble vitamins include the group of B vitamins, e.g. niacinamide (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, which are contained in Red Bull.

These B-group vitamins contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism, such as the build-up and break-down of carbohydrates and proteins and contribute to normal mental performance (pantothenic acid) and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue (niacin, pantothenic acid, B6, B12). Moreover, B-group vitamins play a central role in the brain; they contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.
